Customer Question

I have a Chinese, ivory carved, ornate Chess set. The larger pieces have several balls all carved from the outside I think. Probably 60-70yrs old along with a very nice ivory and wood case/play board. Can you give a low to high value?
JA: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Is there anything else the Antiques Appraiser should be aware of?
Customer: Some pieces broken ( 3-4 ) snapped where base attaches to figurine. Didn't want to attach until I knew the proper way to do it to keep value
